Help with Hoover Commodore 5.0 kg washing machine

Hello All,

We have a Hoover Commodore 5kg washer which has stopped working this
morning.  On the drain/spin cycle it's just sitting there with a low quiet
hum - you can still hear the cycle knob clicking though.  Is it possible
that it has a dead pump?

Many thanks in advance for any help.

I think you are right, as logically that is the only cycle when the
pump is activated, to pump out the water from the wash bowl.  Its
possible that it is a noisy relay, electric clutch or solenoid valve
somewhere too

Might be worth taking the pump/motor out and checking to make sure
there isn't some foreign matter (coins, pen,  underwire from bra etc)
in the pump impeller that's jamming it and stopping the motor

Good news that if it is the motor and it is making a humming sound,
and not producing a smell and smoke, motor probably isnt burnt out.
